Impact Hub Boulder
Who benefits from what we create? What kinds of economies can keep artists from starving while enabling their work to spread freely in the commons?
This gathering will bring together innovators and investigators working at the ecotone where art and ownership models meet. Brianna Wettlaufer, founder of the cooperative stock-photo platform Stocksy United, will show how her company has put photographers back in charge. (Read more about Wettlaufer in her July New York Times profile.) We’ll also hear from local arts organizations with a legacy to build on, as well as up-and-coming projects that need our ideas and support to continue carving out pioneering new models. Come to learn and to contribute.
Join us the previous day, September 15, for another event with Wettlaufer: “Power and Ethics in Online Communities”
Suggested investment: $10 ($5 for Impact Hub members and CU students). Register in advance on Eventbrite.
Sponsored by the Department of Media Studies and the College of Media, Communication and Information at University of Colorado Boulder, in partnership with Impact Hub Boulder and the Colorado Co-ops Study Circle.
